About The Event
While you may get more from this class if you have attended an Alexander intro class, it is not required or necessary to have previous AT experience. Learn or review the basic principles of the Alexander Technique as they apply to walking with dynamic ease and support. Your feet are your foundation, and they are much more flexible than you may realize or experience on a daily basis. Come explore the anatomy of your feet and the different components of walking. It’s really about your whole self; we will just start with the feet. If you are comfortable with it, you will receive gentle hands-on work and verbal guidance. If you prefer verbal coaching only that is entirely possible.
Please bring a table (if you have one), sheets, and your feet.
Presenter: Jenny Briggs has been a massage therapist since 1998. After five years in the field, she thought she would have to give up her career due to pain in her wrists and hands. After taking one continuing education class on the Alexander Technique, she was on the way to saving her career. She studied privately with her AT teacher and then completed a three-year training course to become an Alexander Technique instructor herself, becoming certified in 2007.
